Google Translate App For Live Translation Launched
Google have launched their Google Translate App for live translation. The translating tool can take an audio in one language and can immediately translate it into a voice speaking the requested translated language. It will be rolling out over the next few days to iOS and Android devices. The impressive App has the ability to translate between 80 languages with one of the keys being that an internet connection is not required.
Barak Turovsky of Google said in a blog: “When talking with someone in an unfamiliar language, conversations can… get… realllllllly… sloowwww. Starting today, simply tap the mic to start speaking in a selected language, then tap the mic again, and the Google Translate app will automatically recognise which of the two languages are being spoken, letting you have a more fluid conversation. For the rest of the conversation, you won’t need to tap the mic again—it’ll be ready as you need it. Asking for directions to the Rive Gauche, ordering bacalhau in Lisbon, or chatting with your grandmother in her native Spanish just got a lot faster.”
